    pls advice


  5. What ROM did you use? I'm using ROM from here and have no problem except the FM Radio. Make sure you wipe all the data in ClockworkMod recovery before upgrade, including dalvick data in advance option.

  6. Thank you so much about great huawei u8100 blog. Could you make a tutorial about changing the u8100 company logo (the first image display when booting)? Because after I did flashing the France (Orange company) stock rom and my wifi didn't work, my phone can't do flashing other stock roms, it always failed at step 2/2 (Installing), so my phone booting logo was Orange company's logo and I can't change it anymore. I like the USA stock rom logo which I used before but now I can't change it back, so if you have any method to change the company logo at boot screen or any method to fix the error cause flashing other stock roms failed at step 2, please help me, thanks. I googled and tried so much but can't find a working method for my u8100.
